Triveni Ghat, Rishikesh

#1 of 15 in Historic Sites in Rishikesh
Religious Site · Tourist Spot
Witness a traditional Hindu prayer at Triveni Ghat, one of the area's most-visited ceremonies along the river. Set atop a ghat, or flight of riverfront steps, the prayer involves chanted verses along with bells and drums played by devotees. You can visit and watch as large numbers of leaf boats, filled with flowers and topped with oil candles, are set afloat on the Ganges. Alternatively, stop by one of the many nearby stalls to grab a lantern of your own and add it to the flotilla. Note that two other holy rivers, the Saraswathy and the Yamuna, join with the Ganges here.

  • Ghat is maintained properly. Good to see proper concrete pathways and benches around. Although people are in habit of making it dirty.
